Experimental rectal cancer drug caused all patients’ tumors to disappear in small trial



In an unprecedented clinical trial, a dozen rectal cancer patients saw their tumors disappear after they received an experimental drug called dostarlimab, and none of the patients experienced significant side effects from the treatment. 

“I believe this is the first time this has happened in the history of cancer,” in that this is the first cancer trial in which every patient entered remission, Dr. Luis Alberto Diaz, Jr., one of the trial leaders and a medical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Center , told The New York Times (opens in new tab).
